Panem Map Reveal By Funtactix And Lionsgate In The Hunger Games Adventures

One of the most asked questions in The Hunger Games fandom got to be what does the Panem map looks like? While we do know Panem is located in the ruins of North American, specific locations of the Districts and Capitol were not given in the books which left fans making up their own Panem maps.

Now for the first time, fans will get to see the official Panem map which is revealed by Funtactix and Lionsgate in the official Facebook social game, The Hunger Games Adventures.

Check out the promotional screenshot below where you can see the locations of District 12 and the Capitol. Meanwhile in The Hunger Games Adventures, locations for District 2 and 11 are also waiting to be unlocked.

Actual populated District locations are labelled with a star as seen in the promotional shot below.

For more information, take a look at the press release from Funtactix and Lionsgate:

This book will also contain exclusive content about the tribute’s experience in the Capitol before they enter the arena.

The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion

“The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion” will include behind the scenes information for “The Hunger Games” movie such as casting, screenwriting and costuming just to name a few.

“The Hunger Games” movie tie-in novel, “The Hunger Games Tribute Guide” and “The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion” will hit bookstores on February 7, 2012 in US. “The World of The Hunger Games” which the cover is not shown here will be released on March 23, 2012 in US, which is on the same day as the USA release date for “The Hunger Games” movie.

What do you think of the covers? Will you be buying all of them?

Personally speaking, I’m rather surprised that the cover for “The Hunger Games” movie tie-in novel didn’t feature any of the characters. However, with the flaming Mockingjay pin on the cover, I have no doubt that it would be an eye catching cover which speaks for itself.
